Just like Thomas, the Gladers don't know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they've closed tight. And every 30 days a new boy has been delivered in the lift.
Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up - the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers.
Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind.

The book was very well read. Mark Deakins was pleasant to listen to. His pace was perfect, and I loved how he differentiated between characters.
This is a young adult (or teen) book, but as a grandmother, I still really enjoyed it. I am looking forward to the next book.
I didn't read the print version, but I listen to audio books while I'm working and I found it captivating. Mark Deakins is an amazing narrator, and I felt so connected to the story. It was an amazing book, 100% recommended to other listeners!
The top 4! along with the rest of the series (scorch trials, death cure and kill order)
Deffenetly Newt, he is the perfect combination of nice, strong, and brave. He is one like no other
When Minho, Thomas and Ably are stuck inside the maze at night
This book made me cry, laugh and smile. It made me angry and afraid. It made me have hope and gave me a new view on everything
There is no series more inspiring and beautiful than this I highly recommend all four books to everyone!
The first book in the series captures your imagination and creates a desire for answers to the mysterious past. The book reveals little by way of those answers. By the Scorch Trials it is unbearable, the author is just filling space with meaningless interactions. I could not even finish it. I did not care enough about the answers to sit through another minute!!
No. His writing style is so repetitive. Pay attention to how many times he uses the phrase: "It was like......" to describe a situation. It becomes very annoying and most of the time the description he likens the event to is not a good comparison.
This is what got me interested in the book series. The movie was strangely way more entertaining than the book.
So much promise with how the story begins. So disappointing. Characters are shallow and throw away. The conditions they are suppose to endure don't suspend your disbelief enough to buy into the story.
I loved the book and the story line. I had a terrible time with the audio file. For some reason, it kept freezing and it would not play. I had to re-download it several times at different levels (standard to high) and it still had issues. But, the book, narration, and story itself were great!
I absolutely love this series! Wow once you start reading you can't stop. I listed to this book for 2 days straight. Really original book idea!
The movie was crap, I wouldn't even waste your time.
